    Bob Woodward, who most Americans know as the investigative reporter who reported on the Watergate scandal that led to the eventual resignation of President Richard Nixon, recently dropped a political bombshell on Fox News Sunday concerning former President George W. Bush and President Barack Obama.

    Woodward spoke of the controversy surrounding Bush’s insistence on invading Iraq, admitting that mistakes were made but that, “I spent 18 months looking at how Bush decided to invade Iraq. Lots of mistakes, but it was Bush telling George Tenet the CIA director, don’t let anyone stretch the case on WMD.”

    He also told the show’s host, Chris Wallace, that Obama’s insistence on pulling troops out of Iraq in 2011 was a mistake, one that probably led to the build-up of the Islamic State group.

    Woodward, a registered Democrat, laid out the reasons that Bush decided to go into Iraq when he did, citing momentum because “the war plan kept getting better and easier,” with many advisers saying it would only take a week or two.

    The point he was trying to drive home was that after 18 months of studying Bush’s actions leading up to the eventual deployment in Iraq, that he couldn’t find any evidence of Bush lying about why we needed to be there.

    Why would liberals or anyone be in panic mode over this? nobody cares about any of this that woodward is saying except the folks on FOX who might try and put it in the make a story rotation.

    All folks are gonna remember is that George W Bush took us to war with Iraq because he said they had WMDs. And whether they did or not is irrelevantbe cause we at no time showed the American people the smoking "nuke" per se.

    The American people are visual. If they had been shown viable chemical, biological or nuclear weapons, then all would have been well.

    They weren't shown any, at the time, current WMDs.

    As it stands, that's all that's gonna matter so Woodward and anyone else can say whatever they like.

    Just more yellow journalism. No one is in a panic. The GOP should be as the Bush legacy is billions of dollars wasted and thousands of young American's lives wasted.

    The men and women who went over their would object to your statement in a way you would find not pleasurable should you ever say it to their face.

    Considering how they were treated over there and the trauma so many encountered upon returning, I would disagree.

    I haven't heard too many vets speak positively of us having been there.

    Typical liberal Democrat personal attack from Crabby.

    Woodward is a Democrat so it pains him to have to tell the truth about Obama while all of the other Democrats are lying about Iraq. At any rate, the Clintons know that Woodward is telling the truth because they were fully informed through Congress, as were all of the other Democrats.

    Liberals cannot stand the idea that Bush wasn't lying. They want it to be true, they need it to be true, so they can feel better about themselves.

    Oh, they know the truth--they were there. They are lying on purpose. Maybe they can feel better about themselves when they have lied about someone else.
